Redding CT Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Redding Town Profile

Connecticut Magazine has ranked Redding the #1 or #2 small town for the past decade, and in 2013, it was ranked #1 in Econ-omy. This peaceful rural community in the heart of Fairfield County is committed to excellence in education, maintaining open space, and preserving its historical and natural resources.

The town offers a superb education with 1 elementary school, 1 middle school, and Barlow High School, ranked #9 in the country by US News & World Report’s 2013 Best High School ratings, and #9 by Connecticut Magazine.

Visitors and commuters can easily access I-84 to the north, and Rte. 7 on its western border. Routes 107, 53, and 58 intersect, offering access to the Merritt Parkway and I-95. The Redding Metro-North Railroad station serves resident via the Danbury branch of the New Haven Line. (The station is actually signed “West Redding.”) Westchester Country Airport, Tweed New Haven Regional Airport, and Stewart International Airport are all within an hour’s drive.

There are four sections forming the town, including Georgetown, Redding Center, Redding Ridge, and West Redding. Although the town humbly shows the wealth that is identified with Fairfield County, it is a more secluded option for home ownership. Much of its popularity is derived from the careful planning that has preserved its distinctive, charming character. Redding Center was designated a National Register Historic District in 1992. The district consists of approximately 55 acres, 39 historic structures, and a cemetery dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. Georgetown, which includes parts of Redding, Ridgefield, Wilton, and Weston, was designated a National Register Historic District in 1987. Several movies were filmed in Redding, including “Valley of the Dolls,” “The Last House on the Left,” “The Stepford Wives,” and most recently, a Disney film, “Old Dogs.” Redding’s renowned resident, Samuel Clemens, founded the Mark Twain Public Library in 1908. He added 3000 books from his own collection, growing the library with donations from colleagues in the publishing world, and raising funds himself by hosting concerts at his mansion. Annual library fundraisers include an art show and a gigantic used-book sale that attracts readers and bookshop owners from all over New England.

There are three public golf courses nearby, but many residents enjoy the friendly atmosphere and amenities of the Redding Country Club, a private club nestled high atop the hills in a beautiful rural setting. With little business and much open space, the town is known for its parks, ponds and marshes, as well as hiking and riding trails. Topstone Park is the town’s only municipal park and only spot for public swimming. There are many miles of trails, picnic grounds, barbecue stands, and a basketball court. The Lucius Pond Ordway Devil’s Den Preserve in Redding and Weston, encompassing 1,746 acres, is the largest preserve in Fairfield County, and one of the larger preserves in the metropolitan New York area. Collis P. Huntington State Park welcomes visitors with lifelike sculptures of wolves and bears at the park entrance. Hikers enjoy close to 8 miles of well worn, easy to moderate trails and wooden boardwalks that pass through 900 acres of ponds, dense forest and hills, and ravines thick with mountain laurel.

The Saugatuck Valley Hiking Trail System in Redding covers more than 65 miles of trails, some marked, through dense woods and across fields. Trails pass through three towns, including Redding, Weston, and Easton. Putnam Memorial State Park at the junction of CT 58 and CT 107 is a woodsy 232-acre park, offering outdoor enthusiasts a lovely rural landscape perfect for hiking, fishing, and picnicking. Military history buffs can check out reconstructed soldier huts and ruins from “Connecticut’s Valley Forge,” when George Washington’s Continental Army spent the harsh winter of 1778-79. Highstead Arboretum is a nature preserve, open by appointment only. This former farm, now 150 acres of protected native New England woodlands, was established as a woodland sanctuary for people to study and appreciate native New England woodlands. The hilly topography, winding roads, eclectic mélange of Colonial & Victorian style homes, stone walls, and thousands of acres of open space have become a haven for those looking for a kinder, gentler small town environment that is still convenient to New York City and larger adjacent towns.
